An Easy Way For Paying Your Bills On Time
There was a point in time where I was completely overwhelmed with keeping track of bills and paying bills on time. I was missing due dates and owing extra fees, over-drafting my account! I needed a system, and this is what I use now. I think that having a system to pay your bills will keep you accountable (it does for me) and makes things easier! One less thing to worry about! This really is the easy way to pay your bills on time!
USE A CALENDAR
Depending on how often you get paid you will want to pay your bills either weekly, or bi-weekly. For example, in our home, we pay bills weekly. So I plug in each bill closest to its due date on the calendar. So, if my phone bill is due on the 15th but I know I only get paid on the 7th and the 20th then I go ahead and put that bill as due for the 7th, that way it gets paid early instead of late. Make sense?
